Seeing the monuments from afar is one thing, but getting up close and personal was an experience of a lifetime. Our guide Marjorie was stupendous. She was very knowledgeable and an excellent driver. Loved her enthusiasm. She cared about each one of us on her tour. There really are no words to describe these astonishing monuments. I would do it again!
